This was written by David Emmett in MotoMatters. Not that I expect it to stop the armchair experts, they'll keep spouting rubbish and hitting the disagree icon. "Stoner and traction control Submitted by David Emmett on Fri, 2012-05-25 11:31. The argument has been done to death, and so all posts discussing his use of traction control will be deleted. Here is what I know of the issue- Several people, including Nicky Hayden and Stoner's crew chief Cristian Gabarrini have confirmed to me personally that Casey Stoner uses less traction control than other riders, because his throttle control is more precise, especially in the last 9% or so of throttle. What looks like "pinning the throttle to the stop" is actually "pinning the throttle to the point just before traction control cuts in". The naked eye cannot discern the difference between the two, especially not with quick action throttles."
